Another SA wind farm 

AGL Energy has acquired rights to build a third wind farm at Mount Bryan in South Australia.

The new farm will be at Mount Bryan (Hallett 3), approximately 200 kilometres north of Adelaide.
Hallett 3 is expected to have a capacity of up to 90 megawatts and will be located around 15 kilometres from two other farms currently being built by AGL, the 95 megawatt Brown Hill (Hallett 1) wind farm and the 71 megawatt Hallett Hill farm (Hallett 2).

The proposed Hallett 3 wind farm is expected to comprise around 30 turbines, receiving an average wind speed of eight to nine metres/second – well more than speeds at the other two sites nearby.

AGL managing director, Michael Fraser, said providing the Hallett 3 wind farm goes ahead, AGL could be operating approximately 164 wind turbines in South Australia with a combined capacity of more than 345 megawatts by 2010.

“When fully operational we anticipate that it will generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 43,000 average Australian households and avoid up to 265,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year,” Mr Fraser said.
